"This text fills a real void. There are few comprehensive texts re this subject matter."--Stacey Lambert, Psy.D.

"This compendium of clinical interventions described by highly skilled clinical researchers offers mental health practitioners very practical skills for effectively treating truly serious mental disorders. Especially useful is the mini-manual chapter format with case examples and clinical dialogue illustrating a wide range of cognitive-behavioral methods, interpersonal psychodynamic therapies, and family and systems interventions. This is an excellent choice as a text for advanced graduate students in all mental health disciplines."--Gail Steketee, PhD, Boston University School of Social Work

"This book is an important guide for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and all health professionals who want to review new applications of tested treatments. Guidelines for the treatment of psychiatric disorders increasingly call for evidence of efficacy, making this a most timely publication. Empirical support is no less important in psychotherapy than it is in psychopharmacology."--Myrna M. Weissman, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons

"For a long time, severe mental disorders have been treated for the most part with medication. This book fills a longstanding gap in clinical psychology with its sound collection of effective, empirically based psychological treatments for the most troubled populations. Featuring an impressive list of contributors who represent the leading figures in their respective fields, this is a valuable tool for mental health professionals in the United States and internationally. It is also an accessible text for graduate-level students. I highly recommend this book."--Kurt Hahlweg, PhD, Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany
